DIYPhotography Posted this video on creating smoke effects in photos by French Photog Wen-Jié Yang – Yeah, that’s right…  The video is in French, but it’s so cool that it’s DEFINITELY worth reading the subtitles.

DIYPhotography writes:  One of the nicer and less common effects we see in light painting is thesmoke effect. Despite of its relative rareness, it is really quite easy to make, as light painter Wen-Jié Yang demonstrates in the video above.

As always with Wen-Jie, this is a fast paced, French speaking clip, but well worth going through the subtitles..

Two quick comments:

1. What Wen-Jie refers to as Neon-Flexible (which is actually the smoke making wand) is sometimes knows in more “American” English as EL-Wire (Get is >>HERE<< on Amazon).

2. Wen-Jie is using a stencil to “stamp” the snowflakes into the scene. If you wanna know how to make those, check out this light stencil tutorial, or this light stencil video.
